This study presents the diet and exercise strategies of a world-class body-builder during an 8-week precompetition period. Weighed food records were kept daily, and body fat, resting metabolic rate (RMR), VO2max, blood lipids, and liver enzymes were measured. Two hrs of aerobic exercise and 3 hrs of weight training were done daily 6 days/week. Mean energy intake was 4,952 kcal/day (54 kcal/kg) and included 1,278 kcal/day from medium-chain triglycerides (MCT). Diet without MCT provided 76% of… Expand
High Resistance Training Volume and Low Caloric and Protein Intake Are Associated with Detrimental Alterations in Body Composition of an Amateur Bodybuilder Using Anabolic Steroids: A Case Report
TLDR
There was a reduction in absolute fat free mass, despite the use of AAS, and the combination of excessive volumes of training with inadequate protein consumption was responsible for this outcome. Expand
Effects of Bodyweight Reduction on Sports Performance
TLDR
Reductions in plasma volume, muscle glycogen content and the buffer capacity of the blood explain decreased performance after rapid bodyweight reduction; during gradual bodyweight loss, slow glycogen resynthesis after training, loss of muscle protein and stress fractures (caused by endocrinological disorders) may affect performance.

The amounts of water, carbohydrate and salt that athletes are advised to ingest during exercise are based upon their effectiveness in attenuating both fatigue as well as illness due to hyperthermia,Expand
Evaluation the functional status of the liver in elite Jordanian athletes
Owing to considerable physical, endocrinological and metabolic adaptations, the analysis of biochemical data in elite and top-class athletes requires caution. With the aim to identify metabolic andExpand
Supplementation patterns of competitive male and female bodybuilders.
TLDR
The information provided by this study can help sport nutritionists identify supplements most often consumed by bodybuilders and can aid counselors as they guide bodybuilders towards more healthful nutrition practices. Expand
Nutritional aspects of women strength athletes
TLDR
Female strength athletes should put less emphasis on a very high carbohydrate intake and more emphasis on quality protein and fat consumption in the context of energy balance to enhance adaptations to training and improve general health. Expand

Mechanisms mediating lipoprotein responses to diets with medium-chain triglyceride and lauric acid
TLDR
The overall effects of MCT on cholesterol metabolism may or may not be desirable, whereas those of 12∶0 appear largely undesirable as previously reported. Expand
The effects of high-intensity resistance exercise on the blood lipid profile and liver function in hypercholesterolemic hamsters.
TLDR
It is indicated that high-intensity resistance exercise contributed to dyslipidemia in hamsters fed a hypercholesterolemic diet, whereas liver function enzymes did not differ in regards to the exercise protocol. Expand
Training Practices and Ergogenic Aids Used by Male Bodybuilders
TLDR
It is demonstrated that competitive bodybuilders comply with current resistance exercise recommendations for muscular hypertrophy; however, these changed before competition during which there is a reduction resistance training volume and intensity. Expand

TLDR
The dietary strategies of a 25-year-old bodybuilder were studied as he prepared for a contest and the subject used anabolic steroids and consumed various supplements to enhance muscularity. Expand
Nutrition and the precontest preparations of a male bodybuilder.
TLDR
For this subject, bodybuilding included diet, exercise, and drug regimens, which are common among competitive athletes, which could have placed the subject at risk for thromboembolic phenomena because of increased blood viscosity. Expand
Body composition and Vo2max of exceptional weight-trained athletes.
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that exceptional weight-trained athletes are within the normal college-age population range in body fat and of somewhat higher physical working capacity. Expand
Metabolic profiles, diet, and health practices of championship male and female bodybuilders.
TLDR
This research demonstrates that bodybuilders partake in a multitude of practices that may place them in high-risk health categories and it is essential that health care workers in contact with bodybuilding athletes intervene and educate them about healthy dietary and training alternatives. Expand
Food selection patterns of bodybuilders.
TLDR
Although there was not much variety in the precompetition diets of the bodybuilders, the average nutrient density of their diets exceeded the Index of Nutritional Quality for all nutrients except calcium and zinc. Expand
Comparison of body composition, exercise and nutritional profiles of female and male body builders at competition.
TLDR
Gender differences were found in regional deposition of sub cutaneous fat between males and females, with the males showing a more uniform distribution of subcutaneous fat. Expand
Postprandial thermogenesis in lean and obese subjects after meals supplemented with medium-chain and long-chain triglycerides.
TLDR
It is shown that PPT is enhanced in both lean and obese subjects when LCTs in a mixed meal are replaced with MCTs, and the postprandial response of glucose, insulin, and free fatty acids did not depend on the type of oil contained in the meal. Expand
Muscular development and lean body weight in body builders and weight lifters.
TLDR
Body composition and anthropometric data, including calculations of pre-excess muscle body weight (scale weight minus excess muscle) were obtained and Somatographic comparisons revealed only slight differences between the groups, while differences with reference man were substantial. Expand
High-density-lipoprotein cholesterol in bodybuilders v powerlifters. Negative effects of androgen use.
TLDR
The training regimen of bodybuilders is associated with a more favorable lipid profile than the training used by powerlifters, and androgen use by strength-trained athletes may increase their risk for coronary heart disease. Expand
A new predictive equation for resting energy expenditure in healthy individuals.
TLDR
A predictive equation for resting energy expenditure (REE) was derived from data from 498 healthy subjects, including females and males, aged 19-78 y, and overestimated measured REE by 5% (p less than 0.01). Expand
